Op 8 maart is het Internationale Vrouwendag en om dat te vieren delen we 20 inspirerende quotes van enkele ’s-werelds meest vooraanstaande vrouwelijke ondernemers.


Dit wereldwijde, jaarlijkse evenement stond en staat voor het gevoel van solidariteit en strijdbaarheid van vrouwen overal ter wereld. Vaak vindt de viering plaats rond een specifiek thema, dat soms landelijk, maar meestal lokaal wordt bepaald. Voorbeelden van de thema’s voor 2017 zijn: Vrouwen achter gesloten deuren, Ruimte voor Vrouwen en Kijk eens om je heen.

De werkplek is een omgeving waar ongelijkheid tussen mannen en vrouwen nog steeds voorkomt. Daarom een paar motiverende citaten van enkele van 's werelds meest inspirerende vrouwelijke zakelijke professionals.

This mentality needs to be introduced as a leadership and performance-enhancing tool.” — Arianna Huffington, Huffington Post

  1. “Leadership is hard to define and good leadership even harder. But if you can get people to follow you to the ends of the earth, you are a great leader.” — Indra Nooyi, PepsiCo
  1. “You have to look at leadership through the eyes of the followers and you have to live the message.
